**750 more Black & White scarves** - 2.20pm - 23rd January - Blackburn (H)

What a depressing few days. It's not the first time that can be said this season either.

We crashed out in predictable, yet still gut wrenching, fashion to a team who hadn't won in 8 games. Colchester were languishing in the relegation zone of League One and were statistically the worst team in the football league. Our team was rudderless to a point where no one knew where they were meant to be playing and no one knew who was taking corners. Can it get much lower? Sadly I think it can.

Spell it Out are fully committed to putting pressure on this ownership until they sell up - for the good of this football club.

Over the next couple of days we should see news emerge of the tactics with regards to protests at the Blackburn game on the 23 January - this is being worked on.

Regardless of that however, Blackburn at home on 23 January is the distribution date for more black and white scarves. Charlton Fans have donated almost £2000 to pay for these. That, combined with an added 4k into the General Charlton Life Protest Fund, shows just how wide the sense of feeling is. To part with such amounts of money is a real testament to the fan base, there is hope for us yet.

Despite not being confirmed yet we do not want to be handing these out at a time when protests will be on - so we will be handing out 750 scarves out at 2:20pm on 23rd Jan outside the club shop.

Our position on the scarves is as follows. If you want this ownership OUT of our club, then Spell It Out In Black And White to them and pick one up from us.

Last time the volunteers were not overly necessary, but we only had 250 scarves. With 3 x as many this time around we could really do with your help. Please inbox me if you are willing to give us a hand on the day of the game.

We will accept donations to go back into the pot for SIO banners/flyers/t-shirts or whatever it may be. These are absolutely not necessary however - this is a giveaway!

Thank you for your generosity and continued commitment to the cause - rest assured we will not give up until the fight is won.

Thanks

Joe & Ben

    2. Offer to help give them out

    3. Bung us, or the general Cl protest fund, a few quid to pay for the next project (coming soon).

    think buckets would be a great idea would it be an idea to sell the scarves to raise funds as i was looking for one last week and couldn't find one, think of maybe a suggested donation of £5.00 a scarf is a fair amount,would return 3750.00

    I'd happily buy three scarfs and pay for postage - if this is at all poss pl pm me.

    Definitely think the buckets are a good idea, I am sure most 'customers' would happily contribute for the scarf :)

    If people want scarves prior to the game then inbox @addickted2thereds or me but bear in mind he works and we don't have the resources to run a postal commerce service

    Couple of things to point out. We're grateful for all the suggestions but:

    We are NOT selling scarves although donations and postage are welcome if you are sent a free one or two.

    We WON'T be making a bucket collection. Again donations are more than welcome but there are strict rules about collections and permissions need to be sought. We are under enough scrutiny already so have to be careful.

    We appreciate all the ideas, and offer of help and money, so I hope people will understand when we can't implement all of them.

    Has the liar been getting busy? She must be worried.

    Can I suggest people who pick up a scarf simply make a donation to the protest fund for it?
